For those who were impressed with Ben Affleck's portrayal of the Caped Crusader and are desperate from more of the BvS star in cape and cowl, there could be some good news just around the corner.
We've known for a while Batfleck would be making appearances in David Ayer's upcoming Suicide Squad, in addition to Zack Snyder's Justice League Part One and Justice League Part Two, but just how big a role he'll play has been kept under wraps.
"A Lot More Batman"
Following the release of BvS, all eyes have turned to DC's next offering, and the rumor mill has started ferociously spinning. On Heroic Insider, show hosts Umberto Gonzalez and Daniel Alter mention an unnamed source who they claim has given exclusive information on Batman's screen time. They said:
"The film tested recently, they had test screenings, and according to sources — check this out — there is a lot more Batman in the movie than they are letting on."

Now, before we all get carried away, this is just a rumor, so it should be taken with a healthy pinch of sodium chloride, but it wouldn't be the most surprising news of all time, especially considering the antihero crimefighters are basically a who's who of people who definitely won't be receiving a Christmas card from Bruce Wayne.
Suicide Squad is the third installment of DC's Extended Universe, following Man of Steel (2013) and this year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The most recent trailer, launched at the MTV Movie Awards, also gave an exciting — yet short lived — glimpse at Batman's involvement in the film. Check it out below:
Although BvS highlighted a disparity between box office figures and critics — the film received scathing reviews and holds 29% on Rotten Tomatoes — Affleck's performance was praised as a silver lining to the film's shortcomings.
